Kanye West is reportedly setting his sights on the ambitious venture of building his own kingdom in the Middle East. The revelation of West's plans for a new city, called YZY DROAM, emerged through a website that is actively seeking job applicants for various roles such as project managers, engineers, architects, and contractors.

Spanning an impressive 100,000 acres, YZY DROAM aims to be a self-sufficient city, surpassing the size of Paris by four times and measuring more than half of New York City's expanse. The graphic on the website declares, "YZY DROAM PHASE 1 100,000 ACRE V1 CITY PILOTING IN MIDDLE EAST RECRUITING."

This isn't Kanye West's first foray into large-scale architectural projects. In 2020, he had proposed the construction of his own city in Wyoming, known as YZY CITY, designed as a "hyper-utilitarian" underground community capable of accommodating 200 people, emphasizing a closed loop of self-sustainable living. However, those plans were halted by the state.

In the previous year, West had also filed trademark applications indicating his intent to establish a mini-community called the "Yecosystem." Sources close to the rapper revealed that the envisioned campus would feature branded homes and retail stores selling Yecosystem-branded food items and beverages, with plans for expansion across the United States.

Recent reports highlight Kanye West's increased presence in the Middle East, where he has been actively recording his joint album with Ty Dolla $ign, Vultures, and attending major events such as the Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou fight. Notably, he was spotted socializing with Will Smith aboard a first-class Emirates flight from Dubai to Los Angeles.
